Citrus Avocado Salad

Tis the season for all kinds of glorious citrus! And what better way to eat it than in a Citrus Avocado Salad!  Citrus Avocado Salad from www.whatsgabycooking.com (@whatsgabycookin)

I don’t need much of an excuse to make a salad or eat guacamole. They are 2 things that I’m extra good at and I make no apologies for that. This citrus avocado salad is bringing those 2 things together and it’s currently giving me life. Plus it’s helping me stay healthy, keep my food colorful and it’s making me happy.

Grab your favorite kinds of citrus – I’m partial to navel oranges cara cara oranges, tangerines, mandarin oranges and blood oranges – but you can mix and match as you wish!

  1. This salad is stunning, Gaby! Perfect avocados aren’t as easy to come by on the East Coast, but I’m beginning the hunt right now.

  2. The Citrus Avocado Salad looks yummy; however, I don’t find the recipe for the basil vinaigrette.
    Thanks.

  3. This is absolutely gorgeous. I crave salads like this – I can practically taste the creamy avocado and bright citrus. Beautiful photo, too. It really captures it.

  4. Thanks for the recipe. I always have a couple of organic navel oranges and avocados in the fruit bowl. So just have to purchase a few extras to try the tempting citrus salad.
    From the number of comments you’ve received, it’s a tempting-looking recipe to many!
